in reply to Is it worth knowing Perl? Real-life examples please
These days, most of my scripting is in python, but back in the day, when I had to do a lot of searches through massive log files and do very quick analyses, perl + File::SortedSeek was hard to beat.
I find python is more readable long-term, but it's VERY hard to beat perl for quick 1-liners (although some of my 1-liners tend to be absurdly long lines...).
